Authority for Conducting the Matching Program This agreement is executed in compliance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (5 U.S.C. 552a), and the regulations and guidance promulgated under the Act. SSA’s legal authority to enter into this agreement is section 1106 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1306) and the regulations promulgated pursuant to that section (20 CFR part 401). The authority for SSA’s disclosure of record information is 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3). Section 146(a)(3) of the NCSA (42 U.S.C. 12602(a)) sets forth the eligibility requirements for an individual to receive an Education Award from the National Service Trust upon successful completion of a term of service in an approved national service position. Section 1711 of the Serve America Act (Pub. L. 111–13) directs CNCS to enter into a data matching agreement to verify statements made by an individual declaring that such individual is in compliance with section 146(a)(3) of the NCSA by comparing information provided by the individual with information relevant to such a declaration in the possession of another Federal agency. In accordance with the study CNCS completed pursuant to section 1711 of the Serve America Act, CNCS determined that a data matching program with SSA is the most effective means to verify an individual’s statement that he or she is in compliance with section 146(a)(3) of the NCSA. E. Categories of Records and Individuals Covered by the Matching Program Each individual who is eligible to receive an education award or applies to serve in an approved national service position, including positions in AmeriCorps State and National, AmeriCorps VISTA, AmeriCorps NCCC, and Serve America Fellows, must, at the time of acceptance of an education award or application to serve, certify that the individual meets the citizenship eligibility criteria to serve in the position, i.e., is a citizen, national, or lawful permanent resident of the United States. The Master Files of Social Security Number Holders and SSN Applications SSA/OTSO 60–0058, last published in full on December 29, 2010 (75 FR 82121), as amended on July 5, 2013 (78 VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:05 Feb 16, 2016 Jkt 238001 FR 40542) and February 13, 2014 (79 FR 8780) maintains records about each individual who has applied for and obtained an SSN. SSA uses information from this system to assign SSNs. The information CNCS provides from the AmeriCorps Member Individual Account; Corporation -8 system of record, published in full on March 5, 1999 (64 FR 10879–10893), as amended on August 1, 2000, (65 FR 46890–46905) and July 25, 2002 (67 FR 48616–48617) will be matched against this system of records and verification results will be disclosed under the applicable routine use. F. Inclusive Dates of the Matching Program This agreement will be in effect for a period of 18 months, with a provision for a one-time extension for a period not to exceed 12 months. In order to renew this agreement, both CNCS and SSA must certify to their respective Data Integrity Boards that: (1) The matching program will be conducted without change; and (2) the matching program has been conducted in compliance with the original agreement. G. Procedure CNCS will provide SSA with a data file including each applicant’s and potential education award recipient’s social security number, first and last names, and date of birth. SSA will conduct a match on the identifying information. If the match does not return a result verifying the individual’s citizenship status, CNCS will contact the individual or the grant recipient program that selected the individual to verify the results in accordance with the requirements of 5 U.S.C. 552a(p) and applicable OMB guidelines. The affected individual will have an opportunity to contest the accuracy of the information provided by SSA. The applicant will have at least 30 days from the date of the notice to provide clear and convincing evidence of the accuracy of the social security number, proof of U.S. citizenship, or both. H. Additional Notice Applicants will be informed at the time of application that information provided on the application is subject to verification through a computer matching program. The application package will contain a privacy certification notice that the applicant must sign authorizing CNCS to verify the information provided. For transferees of education awards, at the time an award is transferred, CNCS will provided individual notice that the SSN is subject to verification PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 through a computer matching program.
